A variety of edge computing implementations exist, and each requires careful alignment with networks services and infrastructure. I&O leaders responsible for networking will optimize performance and costs, and reduce risks, by following the guidance in this research.
The topology directive of edge computing is not new. However, the demands of the plethora of latency-sensitive devices at the remote locations are new. An edge computing approach is intended to reduce latency and minimize bandwidth demands by locating application intelligence, storage and compute closer to endpoints, rather than in a remote server or data center.
Edge computing represents an emerging topology-based computing model that enables and optimizes extreme decentralization. However, it is still synergistic with a centralized core, whether traditional data center or hyperscale cloud provider. It places intelligence, storage and other functionality close the edge, where people and endpoints, such as sensors or monitors in an IoT deployment, produce, analyze or consume information. Gartner has identified five requirements that drive edge computing.
Below you will see our take on their “Five Imperatives Driving Computing toward the Edge” today. Fill out the form to read their un-biased view on these issues and then just reach our for how we truly aid your deployments today!
How can you effectively utilize edge computing and solve the challenges in data, diversity, protection, and locations? Read what Analysts are saying about the changing infrastructure:
Latency is imperative – Our Computational Storage products allow for this to be managed more effectively than any existing architecture, especially in edge constrained environments
Minimizing the attack surface by ensuring that edge computing hardware, software, applications, data, and networking have security and self-protection built-in.
Bandwidth is increasing, Still Clogged – With Computational Storage doing localized processing the amount of bandwidth needed for value from data is reduced significantly
Investing in technologies that automate data management and governance at the edge as much as possible.
